Today's date is Saturday, October 16, 2021
Mental Health in the Medieval and Early Modern World : Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group/UWA Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies Annual Conference Other events...
Modern stereotypes abound regarding how mental health was perceived during the medieval and early modern period ranging from mental illness being caused by sin to the idea that the attainment of mental well-being could only be achieved through the balancing of the bodily humours. But mental health was a more complex and expansive subject of discourse throughout the period that was widely explored in medical treatises, religious tracts and sermons, and prominent in art and literature, which speaks to a more subtle understanding of the human mental state.

This conference aims to look at both the changing and continuing perceptions of mental health throughout the medieval and early modern period.
Location Arts Lecture Room 5 and 6 (Ground Floor, Arts Building), The University of Western Australia
